    I have to wonder what the story is here!

    These poor folks with the "God Bless Signs" are the end products of Substance Abuse. ANYONE, A-N-Y-O-N-E can find a job in the current economy - if they can pass a drug test. When someone is 20 or older they need to receive The Memo that the party's OVER. There are Homeless People with...

    TONE how soon is now MASTER VIBROVERB

    The 15" Combo to be precise... In Blonde with Wheat Grill & Tiltbacks. with Reverb & Tremelo. Weighing 33 pounds. Is Fender's Leadership beyond ignorant? Or terrified of Accountants like Housewives & Mice? I think BOTH.

    What music did you listen to as a young child?

The Grooms & Hot Walkers at Belmont are The Guys who brought him to The Savoy which everyone who was Hip referred to as "The Track." Truly Horse Racing is STILL The Sport of Kings & Queens too. It's given My Family so much -...

    10 most discussed/hyped/talked-up amps in TDPRI history (and does anyone still use a Cube 60 ?)

    I have my Cube 60 - still - always have loved it and have zero desire in regards to selling it. I LOVE Roland products for their Reliability & Value. *** From experience I believe that the Marshall Origin 20 Combo (10" speaker) will indeed become an "instant classic" as Players get spoiled to...

    Mountain Lion Sightings In The State Of Connecticut?(!)

    No You wouldn't. They've been around since 1986 - when I first found markings for territory in The Poconos.

    If you went from tube to solid state . . . . How come?

    I couldn't find a Polytone that wasn't a basket case BUT that gave me the opportunity to check out my first Roland Cube 60 which I bought used in good shape and still own today. Once I got a Roland it raised the bar on my expectations no doubt ESPECIALLY with a Hollowbody BUT NOW I simply favor...
